    Meraki
    breath: 41cm & length: 159cm

    By Aahika Jain, Aishani Mittal, Davi Kejriwal, Suditi Mehta & Tamanna Jain
    from, Mayo College Girls’ School, Ajmer

    Material used:
    Newspaper, glue, cardboard, nail, waste decor,  plywood, pipes, wire, base ball, glass, plastic, cards and cloth

    This project is an all-purpose mannequin that can be dressed and accessorised; even the face of the mannequin is created out of newspaper and used sheets. The body is moulded and made out of layers of old newspapers in the shape of a half figure. To make it more secure, the torso and face are both stuffed inside with plastic packages and foil sheets. The mannequin has been decorated with acrylic paint and spray paint to give it a polished appearance. Moreover, it features an extension that resembles bat wings and is composed of rusted, bendable wire. A jewellery display is provided by the wings. The body is then enhanced by being decorated with discarded junk; all of the materials are pulled from the art school garbage. The remaining netting window wires are used to make the legs. All the waste materials came from the school’s carpentry shop and dump yard, including the pedestal used to showcase the mannequin, which is built out of a broken water pipe and leftover aluminium sheet. The goal of this project was to make a strong, original mannequin that could be used by the neighbourhood peddlers and merchants to display their works of art.
    this artwork is a symbol of an ‘ideal society’ .Elements like ‘pagdi’, masks, a mixed gender body- depicts the free society we idolise.

    Price: Rs. 3,000/-

    It’s a very creative thought process. The ideas have been very well brought forward and illustrated. The use of materials is very interesting and impressive. It’s a take on society and possibilities of recycling through the work of art. All the best to the budding artist
